Spring Cleaning Series- Completing my Monthly Cleaning Chores

As part of my spring cleaning series this week, I'm here to share the list of chores I generally complete to make everything a little cleaner for spring! I have shared before my cleaning checklist and generally I complete these task several times a year, if not every week. 

Since I was on a spring cleaning rampage on Saurday I completed a bunch of these tasks in one day, rather than dragging them out over several.

First things first, when I woke up in the morning, I stripped my bed and separated all the sheets, blankets and comforter into piles and started the washer before heading to work.

I also made sure that all my towels were cleaned and any leftover laundry that needed to be done was thrown in as well.

While I was waiting for all that to finish, I cleaned the bathroom from top to bottom. Toilet, shower, sink, mirrors, floor, etc....

I vacuumed the upstairs and took out the trash and recycling. I scrubbed the inside of my trash can with a cleaning wipe.

It was an extremely productive day.

I've compiled a Spring Cleaning List if you are interested in completing your own spring cleaning- it is that time of year after all! =)
